English translation:to have your bit of money
Explanation:
I am from Chile. Chileans like to use diminutives (ita, ito) to almost every word possible. We like to sound cute I guess. Anyway, it's just a sweet way of saying your money.

Pocket money


Explanation:
Hello. That's the often used term for "platita" (South Am.) o "dinerito" (Spain). Not much dough but enough for a movie and popcorn if you're lucky. If it refers to real beginners in the Capitalist Rollercoaster then you may make reference to the Piggy Bank money, that's real "little" money. Cheers and prosperity :)


    Never had enough of it!
    Anna knows lots about Piggy/Pocket monies!!!!
